Japanese 15-year-old phenom Ayumu Hirano just made the birthday/age cutoff to be Olympic eligible. He showed up at X Games Aspen as a rookie in 2013 and rode away with silver, and he did the same in Sochi. If you're wondering who will replace White, should El Rojo decide to quit snowboarding competitively, look no further than this pint-sized powerhouse.
